Matt Kelley Hayden Shaw Ryan Rapkowicz Brad Lyon Jenna Lamy November 14, 2006 Intro to Communication Group Research Project: Topic Proposal Music’s Effects on Human Development Our group has decided to focus on the effects of music on the human brain. There has been much discussion in the scientific community regarding how we react to music and its function in human development. Our research will focus primarily on the effects of music on childhood development, its impact on human creativity, and possible differences in brain chemistry between those who listened to music as a child and those who did not. One of the topics we plan to explore is called the Mozart Effect. The Mozart Effect proposes that individuals who are exposed to classical music – Mozart in particular – gain an increased level of spatial reasoning for a short time after. Scientists have varying beliefs as to the origin of this effect: some feel that the neural pathways used in spatial reasoning are directly influenced by music, increasing spatial reasoning capacity.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
